Yesterday, I was invited for a preview tasting of Burger King’s menu as it gears up to open its first outlet in Mumbai at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon tomorrow. I was really excited to try the vegetarian menu and boy, did I! Unlike competitive burger brands, Burger King has an extensive vegetarian menu with 7 options. Of course, I had to try them all to tell you which one was my favourite. The interesting thing about these burgers was that each one had a different patty, concentrating on different proteins and flavours.
My favourite was the Veg Chilli Cheese Melt burger. The other thing I noticed about the burgers was the size. They were extremely filling and the whopper, especially is massive! As Burger King’s Chief Marketing Officer put it, “the brand caters to hunger fill.” Couldn’t have put it better.
Their fiery onion rings are different too. They’re not made of the usual fully formed onion rings but rather a paste that tastes even better with their sauce.
We actually started with the milkshakes and they were sweet in just the right consistency. And for us Indians, they even have a mango milkshake. 🙂 I was most fascinated with the 180 degree sundae. You can actually hold the cup upside down and it won’t melt. Add to that, I was taken back to my childhood with the Cadbury Gems flavour. Interestingly, Gems are not available crushed in the market and Burger King does that especially for the sundae. Don’t you love that?
If you haven’t figured already, I had a great time at the Burger King preview tasting. The first outlet opens in Mumbai tomorrow. Go get yourself one!
